San Damiano Crucifix 10"H - Lightly Painted Bronze

San Damiano Crucifix 10"H - Lightly Painted Bronze

This San Damiano Crucifix is a replica of the huge Romanesque cross which hung in the the abandoned chapel near Assisi where St. Francis was praying when he heard the Lord tell him to "rebuild my church." All Franciscans view this cross as a symbol of their mission to commit their lives and resources to rebuild and renew the Church through Christ's illimitable power. 

The beautiful images on the lightly painted cold cast bronze cross  inspire reflection on the crucifixion. The central figure, of course, is Jesus crucified. The five larger figures depicted on the sides of Jesus are the witnesses to the crucifixion. On the left is the Blessed Mother and St. John the Evangelist. On the right stand Mary Magdalene, Mary, the Mother of James, and the Centurion who asked Jesus to heal his son in Matthew's Gospel. His son's head appears peering over his shoulder along with the tops of others, indicating that "his whole household believed." (John 4:45-54). Additional figures include two centurions, and angels at the top and on each side of the cross. At the top Jesus glorified is carrying a cross as a victorious scepter.

The San Damiano cross is a perfect gift for ordinations, weddings, or any other sacraments, as well as any with a devotion to St. Francis. Those who appreciate art and aesthetics will enjoy having such a lovely, poignant cross for their contemplation.
